Advocates

AJAC (Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee)

 

To grow and expand AJAC’s programming, we rely on advocates across Washington State to help us connect with new employers, identify new industries, and provide us with a platform to share our story. We thank these organizations for their countless hours of advocacy for apprenticeship, workforce development, and advanced manufacturing.
